Variable Layer Height Plugin

Recommended Posts

Is there a plugin allowing me to change the layer height at a particular layer?  Especially for large prints, for the bulk of it a 0.2 layer height works great to reduce print time, but suffers on curves, domes, and so on especially near the top of prints, so it would be nice to be able to switch to a finer layer height (like 0.1) for these areas.  Or perhaps an adaptive layer height that will automatically switch to a finer layer once the print reaches certain angles  (max / min layer height bounds and angle defined by user).

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
